On-The-Go Makeup Tips: Ways to Shine With Little Time

September 9, 2019

We all lead busy lives but want to look and feel good when we walk out the door or have a few seconds in the car. Below are on-the-go makeup tips that will enhance your natural beauty and let your personality shine for your next business meeting or date.

Let’s begin by focusing on your eyes. Whether it’s mascara, highlighters, or brow makeup, choose products that are easy to apply so that you can be your best in a short amount of time.

Cat Eye Eyeliner stamps. Who has time to sit there and try to make the perfect cat eyes? Get a stamp that will create the perfect wings each time.

Mascara. A swipe of mascara in the morning will make you look more awake. Our tip: your lashes will look longer and fuller when you apply the mascara from the base, not just to the tips.

Brows. Rather than wasting time filling in your eyebrows daily, look into applying a semi-permanent brow tint. The result is flawless brows that last for weeks.

Now let’s talk about your skin. If you’re looking to add (or hide) a bit of color to look your best and help you feel confident, here’s a few things that you can do in a hurry.

Highlighters. Highlighter sticks are wonderful and can be used for so many things. With a few swipes, you can add a beautiful shimmer to your cheeks. Apply them to the inner corners of your eyes, or even use them as eyeshadow.

Concealer. Masking undereye dark circles will make you feel years younger. However, be careful when choosing the shade of your concealer. While some believe that brighter shades will counteract darker skin tones, these shades may actually draw attention to the area. Choose tones that blend naturally with your skin, especially if you’re in a rush.

Setting powder. Louisiana tends to be hot and humid. Let’s face it…the resulting sweat can be a real problem for our makeup. To ensure a long-wear result, apply a pigment-free powder to set your foundation.
